Wandering the Garden of Technology and Passion, a book written by Pierluigi Serraino about Architect John Marx, a long time user of form•Z for 3D modeling and innovator of digital tools, and the impressive projects of his firm, form4. A vivid demonstration of how a small architectural practice can compete internationally with much larger firms, thanks to their grasp of digital tools.”Five chapters divide the work of John Marx that outline the wide-ranging and and biographical conditions of being an architect today. These episodes are structured around themes that cross-section his output, highlighting issues of general interest and avoiding the classic chronological trope so ubiquitous in tales of and architect’s accomplishments. Marx’s design impulse is the undercurrent throughout these sections. It is through design that architects have the greatest chance to bring relevance to their work and affect people’s lives in significantly positive ways.”

Book Description

Publication Date: January 18, 2012
John Marx is of the generation of design architects who witnessed their pencils morph into mouses and their drafting tables into computer desktops. Throughout this transition, he has maintained a remarkable aesthetic consistency in his architectural projects. Wandering the Garden of Technology and Passion is a study of digital design through Marx’s work. This beautifully illustrated book traces the professional path of an architect whose mastery of digital tools transformed his practice into a global player, but who still manages to hold on to the intimate qualities of a boutique practice.
